Bill won't be happy because it is a PLL solution, not a linear 
regression one.  However, on a quick skim, it feels like the explanation 
of the working and the issues is a lot clearer than anything I've seen 
from Mills.

It starts off a bit badly by talking about the size of nptd, when, in 
fact, very little of ntpd is actually involved in the core algorithm. 
Most of it, I guess, is reference clock drivers, plus configuration and 
monitoring code.
